You can't be closer to the water than this

We came here for a large weekday dinner meeting. The view is absolutely stunning, with a panoramic view of both bay bridges from as close to water level as you can get. This is a very large restaurant, with ample room from large groups. Service was excellent for a big gathering. Our fish was done... read more

We went to HS lordships because of a Groupon promotion. It was also right buy our hotel (the Berkeley Marina). The food was good, but non-exceptional (much like a Chart house). I was expecting asomething different. There was a very loud birthday party while we were there which made it a much less enjoyable experience, particularly given the cost.

Lovely experience. Great service, great food. Felt a bit like being on a cruise ship. My personal favorites were the custom made omelet and the desserts. Everyone in our party was happy. And full

Myself and my wife visited Hs Lordshipsin Berkeley as part of my SF holiday. we both loved the location views and the warm hospitality. The restaurant is huge and commands beautiful views overlooking SF and Golden Gate (which is a great plus for vacationers.

My church ministry have our Christmas Luncheon here every year. The service is great and so is the food. It is a great place for group parties and just for yourself and friends.

We dined twice - 6/15 at sunset and 6/16 for their early bird special (5 - 6 PM). Lovely old-school food and charm - incredible view of the bay, the bridge and wind surfers - and really good food. We had the fish and chips and crab/shrimp Louie one night and prime rib and grilled salmon the next - perfectly... More

Went for an annual Brunch get-together. We have tried different venues over the years but Hs Lordships is one of the best. The food is always very good with such a wide variety that everyone is satisfied. Add to that a GREAT view of San Francisco bay and the Golden Gate Bridge, you just can't ask for a better experience.

This is a huge place, with generally great views over the water, bridges, etc. Indeed great place to bring visitors. The food is good but nothing over the top, and the service staff is nice enough but pretty spread out and not always sufficiently attentive, even if well-intended. Big disappointment was that it took nearly 20 minutes to settle up... More

Lordships is located at the SW end of the Berkeley Marina, over the water with a 270 degree view of the SF Bay from Marin County including Mt Tamalpais, the Golden Gate Bridge, downtown SF, the Bay Bridge, and windsurfers/sailboats from the Berkeley Marina. I rated it excellent for the view. Be sure to try the basil pesto with your... More

A friend from the area booked us dinner there right at sunset and you could not have had a more amazing view. We both had the special of the night which was a giant lobster tail ($39). It was prepared well and the sides were nice.
